To better understand the effects of grazing on native plants and grassland bird habitat, a team of scientists led by James Bartolome, professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley, studied three bird species in central California -- Western meadowlark (Sturnella
neglecta), Horned lark (Eremophila alpestris), and Grasshopper sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum).

Forest dwelling birds such as Townsend's solitaire (Myadestes townsendi) and mountain chickadee (Parus gambeli) are replacing grassland obligate species such as sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and western meadowlark (Sturnella

Baird's Sparrows (Ammodramus bairdii), Grasshopper Sparrows (Ammodramus savannarum), Le Conte's Sparrows (Ammodramus leconteii), Sprague's Pipits (Anthus spragueii), Western Meadowlarks (Sturnella
neglecta), and Bobolinks (Dolichonyx oryzivorus) were absent from unburned areas.
An incubation stage of 14 d and nestling stage of 11 d were chosen for simulation because these are average values for the Western Meadowlark (Sturnella
neglecta) (Baicich and Harrison 1997), and it was data collected for this species (by B.W.
The bird community of the matorral is very rich and diverse, and has common species, such as the Chilean tinamou (Nothoprocta perdicaria), unprotected and often overhunted, dove (Zenaidura auriculata), meadowlark (Sturnella
loyca), thrush (Turdus falcklandii), finch (Diuca diuca), mockingbird (Mimus thenca), and blackbird (Curaeus curaeus).
